I'm spreading the word for a contest my fellow writers and I are hosting over at MWC.
Are these Doldrum Winter Months getting you down?
Do you have the Post Holiday Blues in the worst way?
Feel like you are loosing your Hobby Mojo
and need a kick in the arse to get it back?
Well look no further cause we have an
Awesome Hobby Contest for you!
The Brand New
Miniature Wargame Conversion Contest!
So what's the deal?
Here it is: This is a Warhammer 40k Vehicle Conversion Contest. If it's in any Codex or Forge World publication, has an Armour Facing Value and is designed for use in a 2000pt army, it's eligible.
Show us your Coolest Pimped Out Tanks, your most Unusual Walkers, your most Venerable Dreadnoughts, your Wickedest Flyers or anything else you can think of just as long as it is a vehicle. No Infantry, Monsters, Daemons or nurglings allowed. Also, no superheavies (Sorry Guardsmen)
What are we looking for?
Conversion Skillz! We want to see your greenstuff sculpting, use of plasticard, splicing of pieces, kitbashing and out-of-the-box thinking. Only UNPAINTED entries will be accepted. If it's painted we won't enter it...Period.
Who will be voting?
You will! The vote will be public like out past contests open to EVERYONE. But seriously if you cheat..we will find you, we have in the past and we will again.
What will you win?

There will be Miniatures, Gift Certificates and much, much more cool swag all wrapped up into 3 Tight Prize Packages for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and even a sweet 4th place runner up prize voted on by the staff. There will also be a category for Staff Entries, but we won't be winning anything. There will be an updated post with more prize information as we gather it in the near future.
